Shadows and Dust

Shadows and Dust, the music outreach team of City Gate Mission, is the result of Jim Davis’ ministry in the Chester County Prison. This is where he met Richard, a former heroin addict, and started sharing with him about a life in Jesus Christ. Rich, an accomplished guitarist and songwriter was completely transformed once he committed his life to Jesus Christ. He attended a Bible college and soon began applying his musical talents as a ministry tool and now writes the majority of the bands’ songs. Many of these songs in some way tell of his experiences and struggles.

Jim, who last played guitar in his teens, was soon hunting for a good guitar and gained the confidence to sing and play in public. In time they were joined by talented supporting artists, Bobby (percussion) and Greg (standup bass) and invitations gradually increased to perform in churches, prisons and other venues, including Camp at Old Mill. Shadows and Dust recently performed at the Olive Street Presbyterian Church in Coatesville where a few of their songs were recorded and published by ShadowsandDustCGM.
